Max Payne 3 Coming...Eventually
Max Payne 2 didn't sell well, and that's not a fact that has gone unnoticed by Take-Two CEO Jeffery Lapin. "Max Payne 2 came out in November and did not do as well as we thought," he said. "In fact, it did fairly poorly compared to our expectations." However, Lapin followed that statement by confirming Take-Two's intent to make Max Payne 3. "There'll be another Max Payne," he said in a presentation at the 17th Annual Bear Stearns Media, Entertainment and Information Conference. "I think we'll take a few years to make the next one that much more spectacular is what we have to do. But it's clearly a brand that everybody knows." There are no other details available about the game, and even the developer is unknown at this time.
